Recorded at 18 meters.
Habitat: pelagic. Found usually near shore. Often occurs in small schools. Young enter bays. Migrates south from the California coast during autumn, but may remain in front of the Mexican coast throughout the year (Ref. 9345). Feeds mainly on other fishes. Preyed upon by seals, sea lions, and porpoises (Ref. 6885). Utilized fresh, dried/salted and frozen; eaten broiled and baked (Ref. 9988). Considered as potentially dangerous due to its large, sharp teeth and aggressive disposition, though there are no reports of attacks (Ref. 9988).
